  Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative  
  "Together We Have The Power To Make  A Difference

Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative Recognized
by Mecklenburg County Public Schools



Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative (MEC) was recently named to the 2014 Virginia School Boards Association (VSBA) Business Honor Roll by Mecklenburg County Public Schools (MCPS).  The award was presented to David Lipscomb, MEC vice president of member and energy services, by Dr. Melody Hackney, deputy superintendent for Mecklenburg County Public Schools, during a monthly meeting of the Mecklenburg County School Board. Dr. Hackney comments, "We are so fortunate to have our relationship with Mecklenburg Electric.  They are true champions for our school division and this community.  They recognize the importance of a solid and successful education system and its critical relationship to the health and wealth of our county.  This award is so deserving!  On behalf of the children, families, staff and administration of Mecklenburg County Schools, we honor this fine organization and appreciate all of their support to ensure our children get the quality education they need and deserve." This special recognition demonstrates MCPS’ appreciation for the Cooperative’s support of community public schools and also in its aiding the schools in focusing on providing the best education for every child who attends.



Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative has assisted Mecklenburg County Public Schools in a number of ways, including the presentation of electrical safety demonstrations and “Touch-a-Truck” at “I Want to Learn Day,” planting trees with students to celebrate Arbor Day, and sponsoring picnic lunches for Accelerated Readers. The Cooperative also sponsors the Annual Senior of the Month Banquet, the New Teachers Banquet, and offers scholarships to seniors in nine high schools across Southside Virginia. Most recently MEC hosted an end-of-the-school-year luncheon for all 459 teachers in Mecklenburg County. MEC is also a member of the Mecklenburg County Business Education Partnership, an organization that develops and promotes countywide interest and support in education in Mecklenburg County through a close working relationship among business, industry, the community and the school division.   


“At MEC we strive to excel in serving our membership; a part of that service is helping our communities grow in the opportunities available to our members and our neighbors,” states Lipscomb. “A majority of the skills that all of us use throughout our lives were first taught and practiced at our local schools. Without strong business support, today’s schools are faced with an overwhelming task, but together we can insure that our children are prepared for continued education, promising careers, and will be ready to provide future leadership for our communities.”


Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative is the not-for-profit consumer-owned energy provider to over 31,000 homes, farms and businesses located in portions of the counties of Brunswick, Charlotte, Greensville, Halifax, Lunenburg, Mecklenburg, Pittsylvania, Southampton, and Sussex.  It is headquartered in Chase City with district offices in Chase City, Emporia and Gretna.  For more information, visit www.meckelec.org.
